Chidoka Challenges Buhari To Publish Performance Evaluation Report Of Sacked Ministers


A former Minister of Aviation, Chief Osita Chidoka has challenged President Muhammadu Buhari to make public the performance review report of the recently sacked ministers as well as their counterparts still in his cabinet.

Chidoka said this in a statement titled, ‘Chidoka Tasks Buhari To Publish Review On Sacked Ministers, Security Sector, Others” which he signed in Abuja, on Tuesday.

He described the President’s decision to sack the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Mohammed Nanono and his counterpart in the Ministry of Power, Sale Mamman, as an “uncharacteristic move.”

The ex-minister said, “President Buhari in a widely reported speech at the Federal Executive meeting predicated his decision on a claimed ‘independent and critical self-review’ of sectorial performance and evaluation.

“According to Mr President, ‘Two years and some months into the second term, the tradition of subjecting our projects and programmes implementation to independent and critical self-review had taken firm roots through sector reporting during cabinet meetings and at retreats.

“These significant review steps had helped to identify and strengthen weak areas, close gaps, build cohesion and synergy in governance, manage the economy and improve the delivery of public goods to Nigerians.”

Chidoka stated that the speech gave the impression that the President evaluates and monitors the activities of his appointees through independent review and monitoring alignment with the nine priority areas of the government.

He said, “Nigerians would want Mr President to publish the said independent performance review, which according to him have been going on for two years and some months into his second term and final term in office, and which led to the dismissal of the two ministers.
